EZ Summer Recipes Pound Cake Trifle, Tomato Salad, Pasta Salad

I wanted to share some of the recipes I made for the 4th of July.

Red White and Blue Pound Cake Trifle with Strawberries and Blueberries

Super EZ - Layer Entenmann's Pound Cake with Cool Whip and sliced strawberries and blueberries in a trifle. That is my picture above! We spent the 4th with my parents, went swimming in the lagoon, cooked hambugers and enjoyed these 3 dishes. We went home before the fire works...why is 9 pm so late anymore?
My weekend will be spent gardening, maybe the beach and then friends coming down on Sunday! Hope you have a good weekend! We are having thunder storms again and the pool is almost full of water! Next post I will tell you about being attacked by Yellow Jackets this week...
